Zane listened to Kitty's stories about her explorations of the forests of Japan. "Monkeys, and A hot spring?" Zane had never heard of a hot spring before. Nor had he heard of monkey's. He kept riding forward on the path, still occasionally looking at the map for guidance. He didn't know a whole lot about the terrain of his homeland. He spent alot of his days training and working. "Japan sounds so interesting." Zane also thought of the boat ride to Japan. He had never been on A large ship before. Only little boats meant to go down rivers or lakes.
